The festival board, drawing in no small part on our past lassitude on the issue, failed on that count. It also provided the catalyst for a painful discussion which I truly believe is moving us in the right direction. Ultimately, this is not about Gavin or Yvonne Frost. It is not about FPG or COG conspiracy theories or AJ Drew or any of the rest of it. It is about us.
RD, I tried to tell you in another forum where you posted “Hear ye, hear ye!If you are on the witch hunt or band wagon to persecute Gavin Yvonne Frost… Kindly delete yourself from my facebook!
I will have no part in a friendship with someone who would do something like this over something written 40 years ago!!
You have brought back the burning times, and I am ashamed of you…” I tried to explain to you that everyone has done some really dumb things in our past. Very few of those dumb things were in the liturgy of a religion, except for the frosts. I would also like to think that the dumb things we have all done in the past we now use as guide posts in our lives going forward for things to not repeat. In the case of the frosts reply to thi furor that is going on they are feebly attempting to deflect the attention for the heinous passages in their books. It is NEVER OK to tell people to to stick a wooden phallus in their daughter, or to have a sponsor do it for you. I am not a prude on sexual matters. I have no concerns over with sexual initiation of consenting adults. I think that any consenting adult should be able to do whatever the hell they want as many other consenting adults as they want. Other peoples sex lives are no ones business other than those involved. However when the sexual abuse of children comes into the picture as a Community we must stand up and say… NO!!! Especially when it is in the context of a religious practice. There is no place in our modern society for the ritual sexual abuse of children.
“Articles by or about Gavin and Yvonne Frost have appeared in such national publications as Midnight and the National Enquirer.” Biographical material on the back cover of The Magic Power of Witchcraft, Parker Publishing Company, 1976.
The rest of us get to choose freely who we want to see at a gathering. And those who want to continue to see Gavin and Yvonne Frost can congregate and have the Frosts down for their own gathering, should those people be in the minority.
